What should I do now?

School starts in three days. This is the first time in over 5 years that I didn’t have a position to go to. I was accepted to sub in the local district but that isn’t the same and it will not be easy or very lucrative 😦  This uncertainty has me on edge.

    Hi there. I hope you have found a job now. I did a google search on sock knitting machines in IN and got your blog. I am in search of a refurbished machine. Would you know of any vendors? There had been someone in Spencer, which is very close to me, but I cannot find a contact info for them. Thank you for any help you might be able to give.

      I am currently working as a sub so it is spotty at the moment. Hopefully something good comes down the road.

      My first recommendation would be to google the Erlbacher Gearhart company. I bought a new machine from them two years ago and they are very helpful. I also own a NZAK which is from New Zealand. This person is still also selling new machines and comes to the US yearly. There are several circular sock knitting machine boards on Yahoo that I follow. They have a lot of information. I am not sure where Spencer is so I am including a list of instructors, hopefully one might be near you.
      Good Luck!
